Nebraska Deer Hunting - Mule and Whitetail Deer
The Frenchman Unit fills firearm permits around September 1st. Whitetail only firearm have not been selling out. Season choice area 8 antlerless only usually fills in December.
Deer hunters in Nebraska can have a maximum of two either-sex deer permits and any number of antlerless permits.
Frenchman Area and Season Choice area 8 permits normally sell out by September 1. Please apply early!!
We limit the number of persons harvesting deer for all seasons to no more than eight. Additional persons may be taken for the antlerless season.
Our variety of rangeland, crops, food plots etc. makes for extremely nice deer and our topography aids in being able to bag the big one!!
Here are some examples of the deer that roam our area. Whitetail to the right and a Mule below. Below right is another example of the Mule deer on our properties. Typically there is a larger buck or two out there. Four deer 5 by 5 or larger were taken within one mile or less or our headquarters.
The Frenchman area averages about a 62% rate for the rifle season. Here at Great Nebraska Hunting, we have a success rate higher than our area average and this takes in account an average three day hunt versus the entire nine day season.
Permits are limited. Contact Nebr. Game & Parks at: http://www.outdoornebraska.org

Nebraska Deer Hunting Details
We are fortunate in that we have both whitetail and mule deer roaming our land. Whichever you choose, you will enjoy the challenge. We are located in the Frenchman management unit and we are also in the season choice area 8. Our valleys and draws surrounded by our farmland and rangeland enhance the opportunity for a satisfactory hunt. You are welcome to use our amenities that are available for upland game hunting.
Our area (Frenchman) is near the top in the state for the rate of successful rifle harvests. Success rates are typically around 60% for our season area. On our properties, in recent years, we have had higher than average success rates. Archery and muzzleloader successes are more average.
Because our habitat contains field crops such as corn, milo, wheat, soybeans etc, deer in this area typically grow larger than in many other areas, such as the southern states and have a higher quality tasting meat also due to their diet containing grains etc. This diet aids in the potential for their size and quality of antlers.
Several nice bucks are taken in our area during the firearm season. Several nice bucks are in the making for the 2013 season. We have seen both mule and whitetails that are well on their way towards possessing nice racks by next fall.
